Gravity Glue, Rock Balancing.



Michael Grab has mastered the art of stone balancing. He explains how he does it. “The most fundamental element of balancing in a physical sense is finding some kind of “tripod” for the rock to stand on. Every rock is covered in a variety of tiny to large indentations that can act as a tripod for the rock to stand upright, or in most orientations you can think of with other rocks. By paying close attention to the feeling of the rocks, you will start to feel even the smallest clicks as the notches of the rocks in contact are moving over one another. In the finer point balances, these clicks can be felt on a scale smaller than millimeters. Some point balances will give the illusion of weightlessness as the rocks look to be barely touching. Parallel to the physical element of finding tripods, the most fundamental non-physical element is harder to explain through words. In a nutshell, I am referring to meditation, or finding a zero point or silence within yourself. Some balances can apply significant pressure on your mind and your patience. The challenge is overcoming any doubt that may arise.”


I am putting this under metaphysics because he uses meditation as well.

A brief visit with Michael Grab and his Gravity Glue

While experimenting with my camera's time lapse features in a Boulder Colorado park, I found Michael Grab working hard at play in Boulder Creek. This short feature doesn't do his work justice but at least you can get an idea of what he does. He's amazing. It's a real joy to see him create these beautiful natural rock sculptures. Lots of people have watched him work. The Daily Camera ran a story about Mike the day after most of this video was shot.

Some of the formations do look like they should defy gravity. Wow.

You know as I was watching I could not help but think that he is pulling the rocks from a flowing river bed. The water is flowing over these rocks that he is pulling from the river creek to use. These rocks still hold the frequency or vibration of the water flowing through and over them. Could this be part of what is holding them in the formations. The rocks hold a similar frequency therefore they naturally will fit together.

I love this stuff !

After watching the last video it does seem to take on some of the metaphysical, and I notice the weights and balances necessary.

Maybe I will start with three small stones, lol

The first time I ever saw rock balancing was while hiking the Appalachian Trail and coming into the Nantahala river area where the river guides had adopted the practice. None were as impressive as the ones shown here, but they were all over the place and it was like stepping into Lord of the Rings or something. It stayed with me and I've started little colonies all over the place either alone or with friends.

Cool thread.
